I, I still remember
How you looked that afternoon
There was only you

You said it's just like a full moon
Blood beats faster in our veins
We left our trousers by the canal
And our fingers, they almost touched


You should have asked me for it
I would have been brave
You should have asked me for it
How could I say no?
And our love could have soared
Over playgrounds and rooftops
Every park bench screams your name
I kept your tie
I'd gone wherever you wanted

I still remember

And on that teachers' training day
We wrote our names on every train
Laughed at the people off to work
So monochrome and so lukewarm

And I can see our days are becoming nights
I could feel your heartbeat across the grass
We should have run
I would go with you anywhere
I should have kissed you by the water

You should have asked me for it
I would have been brave
You should have asked me for it
How could I say no?
And our love could have soared
Over playgrounds and rooftops
Every park bench screams your name
I kept your tie
I'd have let you if you asked me

I still remember
I still remember
I still remember
I still remember
I still remember
I still remember

    it's a song about love. a kind of love that's not allowed. written by kele, loosely based on himself and his experience(s). i'm not him so i cannot accurately say what he's trying to say but i can say that if it were you, you wanted a kiss, unsure if he wanted one too. What would you do? write a song.
